Diana’s Music Appreciation Month


Silence is usually the order of the day when I’m alone.  I am not usually one to play music while online or in the background at home though I don’t mind it at all if the husband puts it on.  It’s just not normally something I think of during the day.  The conclusion I just came to is that to me playing music while with other people seems a bit rude unless it’s a very low volume, otherwise we have to yell at each other to have a conversation.  A bit Grandmotherish of me I suppose but there it is. If someone wanted to hear what I have to say they wouldn’t be playing music loudly.  Of course, this does not apply if we are in a club or bar.

Since the husband went to visit his kids earlier this month I have started playing music on the computer while I blog, facebook, etc.  In fact, when my husband came home he was rather surprised to hear music coming from my room.

I have always been all over the place with music appreciation.  Pop, Heavy Metal, Grunge, Electronica, Classical, Techno, Jazz, Rock, Indie, Chant/Meditation, Southern Rock, Cajun/Creole/Zydeco.  The genres I tend to avoid are Country and Rap, and R&B though I like Blues I just don’t tend to put it on.

Internet-radio.com has become a constant companion the last 4 weeks.  The first few days I was listening to Dance then moved to Electronica and eventually put on Jazz and am now in my Classical stage.  I think I’ll leave the Heavy Metal/Rock for working out and the random day of gaming I get in.  I think next in order may be Indie but I’m still enjoying classical for now.

There is a soothing calm that comes from music which until now I think mostly evaded me.  Of course, I’m not referring to the harder genres but I reserve those for workouts as stated above oh and they are good for cross country moving too.

What do you hear when you are blogging?

  1. I’m the silence type, too, and feel the same way about trying to have a conversation with music blaring in the background. I feel the same way about the TV. Sometimes I walk into the living room and hubby has the TV on, music coming from the computer, and he’s playing a game. Boggles the mind.

    1. Maybe that’s why I’ve had trouble blogging lately. Didn’t consider that yet. I’ll try it without music again, see if that’s better.
